About Me

Biography

Helping people has always been important to me, and nurturing patients' health is one way of serving. I chose to be a rheumatologist because I’m fascinated with how our immune systems can cause autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases.

Being trained in pediatric and adult rheumatology means I can provide continuity of care for my pediatric rheumatology patients into their adulthood. The many advancements in rheumatology over the past twenty years has translated into more treatment options and better outcomes for patients. I want to be a part of that progress, and I like to partner with my patients in achieving their health goals.

In my free time, I like to cook and try different recipes.
